Whether you are making your way through the bustling streets of giant mega-cities, or absorbing the peaceful scenery of rural farm villages, Asia transports you to another world. Despite this other-worldliness you'll never feel unwelcome, thanks to the friendly locals you will meet along the way.
The APT Travel Group is aware of the situation occurring in the Rakhine State, Myanmar. While we don't travel in the Rakhine State, and it is far from our operations, we are concerned about the situation and our aim is to support local communities where we operate. Via the APT Travel Group’s Charitable and Conservation Fund a donation of $50,000 was made to the Red Cross Myanmar Appeal in 2017 to assist with emergency relief and recovery assistance, such as food, water, sanitation, shelter and health initiatives in affected areas. At this point in time, all cruising and touring routes are operating as normal in Myanmar. By sharing Myanmar’s incredible culture and landscape we are helping provide income and stability to the communities we visit, local businesses, our guides, and their families. We will continue to work closely with our local team, while following advice from the Australian Government’s, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to monitor the situation closely.
